'Bob Hearts Abishola' Actor Vernee Watson Hilariously Called Gina Yashere's Kemi a 'Hot Mess'

In Bob Hearts Abishola, Kemi (Gina Yashere) seems to have more crackpot plans and schemes than any other character. Even the voice of reason in Bob Hearts Abishola, Vernee Watson, confessed what she thought about the character ahead of season 2.

Late in Bob Hearts Abishola Season 1, Bob Wheeler (Billy Gardell) discovered Abishola’s hospital admitted his ex-wife, Lorraine (Nicole Sullivan). Her arrival caused problems for the cast for the rest of the season.

Then, in a video CBS released to promote Bob Hearts Abishola Season 2, “A Message From Vernee Watson,” the actor commented on Bob’s former flame.

“Now we met the ex-wife, Lorraine,” she said. “I guess Abishola listened to us because she sure put her in her place … but what about Abishola’s ex-husband? I wonder when we’re going to meet him.”

Vernee Watson did not have to wait long as Abishola’s ex-husband, Tayo Adebambo (Dayo Ade), appeared in Bob Hearts Abishola Season 2, Episode 7. He planned to bring Abishola and Dele (Travis Wolfe Jr.) back to Nigeria, but the new couple asked him to grant an official divorce to Abishola.

When Watson heard that Tayo would be single, she knew one character they should probably keep away from him.

As Watson reflected on Bob Hearts Abishola Season 1, she laughed as a thought crossed her mind about Yashere’s character.

“Shoot, [we] better keep [Abishola’s ex-husband] away from Kemi,” Watson said about Yashere’s character. “‘Cause, she’s a hot mess!”

As Kemi’s romance with Chukwuemeka only gets more complicated with Morenike (Tori Danner) in the mix, Vernee Watson could tell just how messy Kemi’s situations could get.

However, despite the drama in the show, Watson went on in the video to talk about her experience onset.

Her words sound familiar to how Billy Gardell praised the cast and crew of Bob Hearts Abishola. At the PaleyFest Fall TV Previews in 2019, he talked about how co-creator Chuck Lorre made the set feel welcoming and open.
